Septic Maintenance

Center Septic Focus’s on Septic Maintenance

More than one in five households in the United States depend on septic system to treat their wastewater. The proper septic system care and maintenance can help homeowners avoid system back-ups which can lead to costly repairs and failures. We will assist you with septic system repairs and risers.

How to be a Good Septic System Owner:

1

Septic Pumping is a must every 3 to 5 years by a licensed qualified professional.

2

Avoid pouring harsh products (e.g., oils, grease, chemicals, paint, medications) down the drain.

3

Discard all non degradable products (e.g., floss, cat liter, tampons, condoms, personal and baby wipes- even if they say they are biodegradable. Discard them in the trash instead of flushing them.

4

Keep cars and heavy vehicles parked away from septic system- leach field and tank. (Unless you have a commercial grade cast iron riser lid).

5

Other than root killer, we do not recommend the use of additives. A standard septic service system is anaerobic and the bacteria thrive without oxygen or light. Many additives contain aerobic bacteria and enzymes that will not live in the tank. Some additives will break down the scum map.

6

Repair leaks, small leaks can add up to big problems. Water use in a typical single-family home is nearly 70 gallons per individual, per day, and just a single leaky toilet can waste as much as much as 200 gallons of water per day. That will cause the system to overflow.
